|The Iron Skillet is behind us|
As a longtime blogger and writer, I really get a kick out of finally being able to meet with a good buddy in person. Everybody's blog takes on the personality of the blogger, so we often get a pretty good idea about what our blogger buddies are like.
I've been fortunate enough to meet a few bloggers over the years, and it's always been such a positive experience. Until I met David Powers King...
Just kidding. So David and his family happened to be in the wonderful state of Misery (Missouri), and they were only going to be an hour away from me on their way up to visit more family. So of course I had to go and meet him!
I was fortunate to have lunch with David, his wife, three little ones, and his sister's family. We met at a truck stop/diner. For real! The place was called Iron Skillet because they serve your food in...you guessed it...an iron skillet.
I can say without a doubt that David is even cooler in person. I'm a pretty talkative person, so I'm sure I talked his ear off. We talked about writing, collaborating with another author, and our publishing adventures. We even talked about our day jobs.
Social media is an amazing thing. It allows us to communicate with others from all over the world, and I love it. But it's extra special to be able to look a good friend in the eyes and shake his hand. Share a meal and swap stories.
I hope to meet many more of you. And don't worry. If you're an introvert, I'm more than able to talk for the both of us.
